Measuring social impact and performance in organisations
7th Jun 2017
Measuring social impact and performance in commercial and non-commercial organisations: questions, challenges and future actions
Measuring the social impact and performance of organisations has gained considerable interest in the public media space. Commercial organisations are no longer able to only report on economic performance but are also required to report on their social impact and performance, and have begun to provide this information in narrative form through integrated reports.
The inability to measure and report social impact and performance similarly to economic performance has curtailed the ability of organisations to demonstrate their community value. Numerous questions and challenges exist in the project to measure social impact and performance and progress is patchy and limited.
In a thought-provoking presentation, Professor Matt Hall, Monash Business School, will share his thoughts on these questions and issues based on his own research and the research of colleagues, and will highlight future actions required to make real progress towards an understanding of social impact and performance and its measurement. Matt's presentation will be followed by a moderated panel discussion involving Matt and senior executives from organisations who are grappling with this issue.
Matthew Hall is Professor of Accounting at Monash University. His research interests relate to management accounting and performance measurement, with a specific focus on non-profits, social enterprise and the third sector.
His current research is focused on the development and use of performance measurement techniques in non-profit organisations and the development of techniques designed to measure social value and how they become implicated in the operations of nonprofits, impact assessment and influence discussions of non-profit effectiveness more broadly.
His work has been published in a variety of leading journals in the accounting, management and non-profit fields, including Accounting, Organisations and Society, Management Accounting Research, Harvard Business Review, Journal of Management Studies, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly and Voluntas.
